Anita Nayyar to head media jury at D&AD 2018

Havas Media CEO for India and South East Asia Anita Nayyar has been named as Jury President for media at the 56th Annual D&AD Awards to be held in April 2018.

 

The awards are now open for entry, with two brand new categories announced to celebrate the very best work in an ever-evolving creative landscape. It’s a little surprising that only one advertising biggie from India is heading a jury despite D&AD’s attempts to evangelise the Indian advertising community for some years via the Kyoorius Design and Advertising Awards.

 

Said Tim Lindsay, D&AD CEO: “In a media environment that encourages the short-term and tactical it’s never been more important to stand up for craft and creativity. Why? Because the good creates better outcomes than the bad – commercially, socially, sustainably, culturally and politically. D&AD’s role in this is stimulation, not congratulation. There’s too much backslapping when what is needed is a focus on and enablement of creative excellence in advertising and design. We are engaged in a war against mediocrity and you are an important ally. Get involved!”
